This book is designed to address many of the misconceptions and common questions surrounding medical malpractice and wrongful death in New York, which are areas of law that present unique and challenging issues. I believe that a better understanding of these issues will benefit both our clients and the attorneys who represent those injured through negligent acts. For that reason, this book is also meant to answer some of the tougher questions that arise in medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. Victims of medical malpractice and those who have lost loved ones through the negligence of others face daunting personal challenges.
Having to navigate a lawsuit without a skilled, experienced trial attorney should not be one of them. For the attorney, please know that these cases are not for the faint of heart. It is well known that the successful trial attorney is not only armed with the necessary experience, knowledge, and trial skills but also with extraordinary courage, conviction and empathy.
